graphic: Consent is for evereyone. Adults with disabilities face abuse and often don't receive consent and sexuality education. You can help!

in 2018, NPR's Investigations Unit reported that people with disabilities were seven times more likely to experience sexual assault than people without disabilities.

It is important to understand this problem, which happens with disturbing frequency among people with disabilities, but it is under-reported and poorly understood. You can read more about it in this sponsored article on KSL.

And if you are an adult with a developmental disabilities or you care for or work with one,  you can help by taking this survey. It requires only 10 minutes of your time and and will not ask for your direct experiences, just training and education needs. This survey will provide data that will inform future prevention and response efforts.
